So, as the title implies, I caught a fish in the one small area in the combat zone (the first area with Blips, I think). The fish was yellow and shaped like a star. When I caught this fish, I became unable to control my character or do anything at all. The music still played and wild Blips moved around behind me; actually, the day-night cycle appeared to continue, as well. I waited around and hoped that once it became midnight, my character would pass out. However, eventually, the sun just came up and it became daytime, with my character still standing there, holding the star-shaped fish above her head. I ended up closing out the game and re-loading to "fix" the issue. Just wanted to let ya'll know! :)
I accidentally ate the ingredients that are needed to complete the quest.. there seems to be no way to obtain those items back again and can't leave the area until I cook the pie.. so now it seems I have to restart with a new character.
